NBC To Reboot ‘Murder, She Wrote’ With Octavia Spencer

According to Deadline, Octavia Spencer has agreed to star in a rebooted and updated version of the mega successful series Murder, She Wrote, which originally starred Angela Lansbury.  As of right now, it's only been assigned a pilot and it's being described as an hourlong procedural drama. Spencer will play a hospital administrator and writer who self-publishes her first mystery novel. But her affinity for crime leads her to solve real-life murders. "I've always considered myself an armchair detective and in a recent meeting with Bob Greenblatt (NBC's Chairman), he asked me what type of character would be able to lure me to TV," said the Oscar winner. "Naturally I said 'J.B. Fletcher' meets 'Colombo' and here we are."
